My ambition remains to make the definitive Matt Rishton Movie, but in the meantime, here's what I've been doing...
I am a freelance Lighting Cameraman, Editor and DOP and now director, of twenty years experience. My recent work has been mainly lots of TV commercials, both regional and national as a DOP, Cameraman and Editor. I film football and other sports for Sky, BBC and BT at the weekend.
I have produced dozens of TV ads from script to screen including all post production including FCP, Premier Pro, After Effects, C4D grading and sound mixing. I am used to meeting the technical requirements of broadcast compliance and working within tight deadlines. I have also directed numerous TV ads. I write, and have come up with the creative for several campaigns and a feature which I wrote and produced myself.
My experience also includes promos, music videos, live events, lifestyle, corporate, docs and drama. I have used most digital formats especially Arri Alexa, Red One, Red Epic, Canon C300, X305 Sony F3, EX, PMW 200, XDCAM and DSLRs.
My showreel, Bio and equipment can be seen at
I can Supply Red Epic kit or Canon 5DMKIII kit amongst others. I have Lights, radio mic, rifle mic, a slider and a flycam. I also have a Canon 550D to give a two camera shoot.
Recently I wrote and shot a short film called Signs and Wonders, https://vimeo.com/83629369
The feature I wrote and shot is called "My Name is Nobody" which is currently being distributed by a company in Hollywood. The trailer for which can be viewed at https://vimeo.com/59753341
I am used to being sent off with a minimal crew and taking charge of all aspects of production to obtain the best possible rushes.
I would describe myself as friendly and professional with a good sense of humour with an equal measure of artistry and technical craft.
Due to a change in circumstances I am now keen to offer my services to wider range of clients. I can fit into any existing pay structure. I travel nationally for work
